WOW! half way through April already. The weather is behaving much more like mid-March with all the crazy temperature ups and downs. We had snow a week ago, it was 82 F on Saturday and it's 40 F something today.
I got sidetracked tonight so this will be short. Yesterday was the official check-in day for . Gifted Gorgeousness is hosted by the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching and is designed for us to thank those wonderful folks that have gifted us with stitch things or show the things we're stitching for gifts or anything else we can shoehorn into the theme. Except for my Small SAL piece, all of my pieces this year are gifts (all two of them) - I've just recently added three more projects but I can't show any of them right now as they are surprises.
Goldie is a gift for my in-laws. It's a stocking that was charted by Heaven and Earth Designs of their German Shepherd puppy Goldie she has some really long registration name that I can't remember but her call name is Goldie. Last month she was here:
My other piece is Japanese Zen Garden by Chatelaine. This is a gift for my son. At last month's check-in it was here:
Not included in Gifted Gorgeousness is Just Nan's Pearl Orchid which went from here:
It is too early in the month to report, but I have officially blown my Stich from Stash budget. I had patterns but not fabric for the projects I need to start, so while only a bit over, I went over. Oh well, it could have been much worse.
And before I forget, it's also TUSAL time. Sharon at It's Daffycat hosts this SAL. Click on the link for all the rules, but they can be summed up as: Save your bits and scraps, put them in a jar, take a picture and post. This is a "because we can" type SAL.
